Poison Pen, a new feature film based on a screenplay by internationally renowned author Eoin Colfer (Artemis Fowl), is set to follow up its premiere at the Galway Film Fleadh with an exclusive screening in Dublin at the IFI as part of its Ireland on Sunday season.
P.C. Molloy (Lochlann Ó Mearáin), a Booker-prize-winning author, is coerced into writing for a tabloid gossip magazine. Cultures clash and sparks fly as the cerebral Molloy finds himself immersed in the world of vain celebrities and he begins to fall for his boss (Aoibhinn McGinnity). A smart and savvy romantic comedy, Poison Pen asks questions about the nature of celebrity, integrity and deception.
The directors will participate in a Q&A and Eoin Colfer and the film’s cast and crew will be in attendance. Poison Pen is a production of the Filmbase/Staffordshire University MSc Digital Feature Film Production Course.
Poison Pen screens on Sunday, 31st August 2014 at 18.00
